Why Study in New Zealand?

 

Some reasons to choose to go to New Zealand for your high school programme:

  • The school year matches the Brazilian school year: from February to November.
  • The educational system is similar to the British and is recognised worldwide.
  • The academic year is divided in four terms. Each term lasts 10 weeks (with exception of the last term which comprises only five to six weeks). Between terms there is a two-week period of holidays; that’s when you have the opportunity to travel and acquire a deeper knowledge of the country.
  • Public schools are well equiped and have modern facilities for sports, music and arts, besides carpentry and electronics workshops, auditoriums, libraries and lots of green areas/sport fields.
  • Over 35,000 international students come to New Zealand each year which means that you can make friends from all parts of the world in your own school.
  • Every school has an assistance department for international students and offers special English classes for non-native speakers – ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages).
  • New Zealanders or Kiwis, as they are also called, are very welcoming, informal and love sports.
  • For years New Zealand has been considered a country with one of the lowest levels of corruption in the world (Transparency International) and one of the safest to live in.
  • Nature is well preserved and access to mountains, lakes, forests and beaches is very easy, ideal for those who enjoy safe outdoor activities.
  • Seasons are well defined which means that both winter and summer sports can be practised.
  • New Zealand is a small country with a population of approx 4,500,000 people and everything works well without long queues or burocracy.
